The best.
in Southington, CT |
Called the Eye Care Group with a possible retina issue. Within 90 minutes I saw Dr. Berenberg who is one of the vitreous/retina specialists. He meticulously examined my eye and confirmed that there tears in the retina from vitreous detachment. He patiently explained the problem and my options, strongly suggesting we do an immediate procedure to avoid retina detachment. The timely procedure proved quite successful saving me from a more extensive operation and recovery. An excellent doctor.
Thank you Marc! I'm so glad that you're doing well. I'm also very happy that you appreciated our staff and felt well treated from start to finish. Wishing you the best. Sincerely, Dr. B
